  1. Is Nania Mahuta not only the laziest Foreign Minister but also the most useless and incompetent Foreign Minister this country has seen for many years. And for this lack of achievement, she had to beat Murray McCully who paled into insignificance.

    And we, as Taxpayers pay for such incompetence.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/foreign-affairs-minister-nanaia-mahuta-hasnt-directly-contacted-nz-ambassador-in-russia/GW42C533ZW7SWINC3DQXFDGAA4/

    • Have you caught up with the latest revelations about corruption in the Mahuta clan?

      https://www.thedailyexaminer.co.nz/all-in-the-mahuta-family-taxpayer-funded-empire-over-water/

      This is part 2 of the story (link to part 1 is contained here). The Daily Examiner is blowing the whistle big time on Mahutapotamus and her stinking corrupt operation, and Sean Plunket on The Platform is onto it too, opening his 7-9am segment today with a report on it. I didn’t hear Sean’s report, but there has been discussion about it by Michael Laws too.

      Nothing about this is appearing in the MSM, obviously, because the MSM is totally owned by Ardern….. but it will be interesting to see how it plays out in the alternative media.

      My feeling is that the general public are finally beginning to get pissed off with these fucking clowns, and we might start to see some serious kickback developing over the next month or so.

  2. Who the fuck does she think she is? She is just a PM of a tin pot little country on the arse end of the world with less people in it than 75 cities around the globe.

    Stuff reports:

    “Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has arrived in New York for her trade trip, rolling up in a motorcade”

    No it hasn’t, this lazy PM did not get her act together nor did the PM’s Department and organise a visit early enough or she was not important enough for Biden to meet her. Either way, it is a fuck up. But let’s blame COVID for her incompetence.

    “The Government hopes it will include a meeting with US President Joe Biden, although Ardern’s positive Covid test has complicated the potential meet.”

    Then Stuff goes into full “Brown Nosing Mode”

    “The day really does demonstrate the lot of a jobbing prime minister. Do a bit of everything, all in the national interest.”

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/128736740/prime-minister-jacinda-ardern-heads-to-the-big-apple-for-the-big-sell

    I guess the Reporter has to give the Govt and the PM a backhander somehow for his free trip to the US.

  4. National Party leader Christopher Luxon said the Government needs to stop being soft on crime and be doing more following the seven overnight shootings in Auckland.

    “It’s been happening too often hasn’t it, every day there’s something like this going on with gangs.”

    If he were making the calls to toughen up on a crime, he told the AM Show this morning that he would start by reallocating the $210 million for a firearm registrar into a firearms prohibition that would give police search warrant powers to go after illegal guns.

    He also wants to see a dedicated permanent police gang unit set up, police to have easier access to guns and said police needed to review the pursuit policy.

    “People are incredibly frustrated, the people I feel sorry for are those dairy owners,” he said.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/auckland-shootings-police-called-to-seven-suburbs-around-the-city-overnight/SDZV5GPQUAMO5XUO6MXRN7ETZM/

    H learnt this of course in his favourite town of Chicago.
    He’s a short arse fuckwit.

    Does he not remember he signed into law the law that removed all the illegal guns from law abiding citizens?
    That has gone really well and now he wants the law to be repeated.
    He wants the police to have more access to guns (like they have in Chicago).

    A bit of light reading for the dozy git.
    https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/2021-ends-as-chicagos-deadliest-year-in-a-quarter-century/2719307/

    So that doesn’t work.

    These wars are all about drugs and crime and coercion and money laundering.
    And tribal affiliations.
    Perhaps it will ll come good when the Mahutu’s have their dynasty established over the lands of the Crying Cloud.

    • A competent worker with a metal lathe and know how can whip up a fully automatic firearm in no time. 3D printing also allow people like me with minimal skills to create a working firearm.
      Heck, any old steel tube with a hole of 18mm can be made into a slam fire shotgun in about 10minutes of tinkering. (Not that I would ever want to shoot it).
      Gun control laws are only applicable to those that obey the law.

  5. Auckland is looking more like the set of some weird post apocalyptic movie by the day. So glad I don’t live there. Mind you it’s no rose garden up here either, Takahiwai and Ruakaka village are full of headhunters the local P dealer in Paparoa drives a Maserati despite being on the dole, parts of Whangarei are bloody awful, One Tree Point is full of ancient escapees from Auckland who ride around on push bikes and moan about everything, and to top it off the whole province is crawling with exclusive brethren.!

    • I spent 6 years living in Ruakaka when I was growing up. It was a nice semi-rural environment back then. It was all families. Everybody’s dads worked at the refinery or the power station, it was safe and fun for kids to explore the beach and countryside, the schools had a good reputation – it really was a bit of a paradise for a kid aged 9-15. I’ve been back often since, and it’s no longer the place I knew in the 80s.

      • Full of Aucklanders now, anyone who overshoots Mangawhai ends up there or even worse One Tree Point which is growing like topsy. The beach is still as good as ever and a lot of the old families are still around. The refinery closing will hurt the area, but Northport are growing and the industrial area is finally starting to take off. Still one of the best places in Northland and that beach is pretty hard to beat.

        • One Tree Point is still recognisable if you come in from the Takahiwai end, but a couple of years ago I drove in from the refinery end after an interval of a few years and I got a shock. My old man was at the power station and we lived in the station village when it was still owned by the ED and kept tidy and clean by its own dedicated maintenance team. My siblings and I lived on that beach. We walked its length, we swam all year round, we rode Mum’s horses from end to end, and we engaged the neighbourhood kids in all sorts of games and warfare throughout the dunes. There was a small radiata plantation next to the village whose trees were full of kids day in, day out. We had BMX bike tracks in there, and we conducted military campaigns against defences made out of heaped up pine needles. Cripes, it was a different world.

      The fentanyl on the streets is so powerful that many family members have died from trying to save their children with mouth to mouth resuscitation ,an absolute tragedy.

      How is it different to “iwi culture”? (The iwi will vary in their cultures. Which iwi gets chosen to be the “Maori culture” model, and why?)

      Who gets to decide “Maori culture”?
      – The national executive council of “Maori culture”?
      – A committee in Wellington?
      – The media

      • Revy, what I find hypocritical about this bald headed git is, there are only two official languages in New Zealand.

        New Zealand Sign Language (NZ Sign Language Act 2006)
        Maori (Maori Language Act 1987)

        English is not an official language, it is a recognised language, although it is the most widely spoken and used.

        So why has the bald headed weasel only chosen to learn Maori and not NZ Sign Language which would have been far more helpful to those in the community who can not hear or easily communicate.

        Or is it he is wanting to appear really woke and appease the 2% of the population who can speak and understand Maori?

        I would have been much more impressed if he had learn’t NZ Sign Language and done something positive for the community.

    • I gave it a good go, but I came to realise that I don’t like Maori culture, I don’t like Maori values, I don’t like Maori attitudes, and… I just really don’t like Maoris. Now when I say that you know I don’t mean ordinary individual Maoris like my very good next-door-neighbour, but those corrupt, greedy, grasping, arrogant Maoris (self-proclaimed or real) who parade perpetual victimhood and offense and try to squeeze their fellow Kiwis out of everything, in return for nothing. They can all fuck off.

        • Yeah, it’s a very long list. You’d run the page out of scrolling room. And it doesn’t include my next door neighbour (doing a great job of bringing up his kids as a widowed dad, by the way), or the likes of the “whanau” in Northland, who I’m connected to through an uncle’s marriage (yep, my hori cousins). They are part of that considerable proportion of Maoris (noticed by many) who are embarrassed by all the nonsense and don’t buy into the Maorification bullshit one little bit. The hori cousins (which is how they refer to themselves in family conversation) are (nearly) all go-ahead people working hard, running businesses, making money, etc. They might enjoy a pot of pork and puha, or a chinwag with Aunty on the marae, but they’d be the last people to force “Aotearoa” on everybody else.

  8. National leader Christopher Luxon says the Government conflates spending announcements with actually getting outcomes, as he continues his criticism of Budget 2022.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/25/govt-conflates-spending-announcements-with-outcomes-luxon/

    “I’m concerned that actually we’re doing a lot of damage to our financial books because we’re not managing the fiscal situation as well as we can, with as much discipline as we can.”

    Luxon described the Government’s one-off, cost of living payment of $350 for people earning $70,000 and under who do not get the Winter Energy Payment, as “band-aid economics”.

    Luxon said the payment is a “band-aid on a major wound”.

    Luxon also questioned the Government spending $327 million on the merger of TVNZ and RNZ in Budget 2022 and $650 million on moving businesses away from using fossil fuels. He also called in to question spending on delivering the firearms register.

    Christopher Luxon calls for Strike Force Raptor-style gang unit to address rise in violent crime
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/05/christopher-luxon-calls-for-strike-force-raptor-style-gang-unit-to-address-rise-in-violent-crime.html

    “The reality is that gangs have increased by 40 percent under this Government, we have just over 8000 gang members and we’ve got just over 10,000 police officers, we’ve had 2500 501s returns and 50 percent have reoffended. I think there are a number of things the Government needs to be doing to cut down on this.”

    Luxon said along with a dedicated unit, police should have warrantless search powers to go into gang pads whenever they like to track down illegal guns.

    He also called for a review of the pursuit policy so police could crack down on fleeing drivers and a review of the maximum penalty for being in possession of a firearm without a licence. The current maximum is a $15,000 fine or a year in prison but Luxon says it needs to be reviewed.

    “The problem here is illegal guns, that’s what we’ve really got to go after and sort out, that’s why we’ve seen the increase in serious, violent crime.”

        ….., Hells Angels member Stephen Cunningham sported a new patch after he recovered from attempting to set a bomb, consisting of two Nazi-style SS lightning bolts below the words “Filthy Few”.
        Some law enforcement officials claim that that patch is awarded only to those who have committed or are prepared to commit murder on the club’s behalf.
        According to a report from the R. v. Bonner and Lindsay case in 2005, another patch like the “Filthy Few” patch is the “Dequiallo” patch.
        This patch “signifies that the wearer has fought law enforcement on arrest.”

        They seem to be focused on Tauranga, Rotorua & Matamata, figured in 2018-22

        I think they sort of try to keep a low profile, unless they can present something of “kindness”.

        September 2018 … A Weekend Sun invitation to the Filthy Few Motorcycle Club to respond to Simon [Bridges] was delivered to the club fortification in industrial Judea this week. The club, which doesn’t have a reputation for engaging with the media, hadn’t responded by the time of going to print. ….

        …. says there are some trendies out there who think the gangs are a bunch of misunderstood good guys who do sausage sizzles at the weekend.

        “But they are absolutely not. They are inextricably linked to the methamphetamine trade, synthetic cannabis and the like.”

        Those drugs, he suspects, are coming through the Port of Tauranga. “Our port, our harbour, and it’s quite possible Tauranga is the main gateway for those drugs entering New Zealand.” ….

            As long as either of those 3 things exist there will never be a free market for housing and it will forever be govt manipulated.

            Even the first home buyer grant and the kiwisaver crap just distorts the market, its all idiotic but like lemmings theyll all follow rleach other off the cliff.

            Btw nasska i dont know why you have your hopes up as any big dip in house prices wont help your grandkids into homes if anything theyll be even further out of reach due to restricted borrowing and high interest.
            Its a nasty beast of give n take… as unaffordable prices fall the interest creeps up and swallows any of the buyers advantage, when interest drops the house prices increase swallowing up any advantage.

          • The only way this country’s people will be homed is to reinvent the scheme where couples with families were assisted into new houses through State Advances as it was called at the time. Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis were offered the dignity & pride that home ownership brings.

            Assistance to those who want to help themselves…….not riches to scum landlords disguised as charity to the poor!

            • Yup, a hand up not a handout.
              Even a leasehold scheme would be better then nothing.

              Interest rates etc wont make housing drop/affordable. The only way i can ever see it getting cheaper is if 1.building materials/costs come way down 2. Build until theres a massive over supply of houses in most parts of the country. 3. The benes, accom supplements etc are ditched.

              The enormous cost to build now i honestly dont see housing getting any more affordable, yea the market will go dicky and stagnate but it dosent help anyone really and if construction halts for a while that just creates trouble in a couple if years eg. Short supply again = higher prices. Esp if we go into recession and they slash interest again to stimulate the economy.

          • The scum land lord with 1 vote is easily out bidded by the 100 tenants who were taught to follow and demand the progressive way of equality as taught by those brilliant intellectuals, academia, media, shaking a feed bag of chips,

            They cared mightily and encouraged other rackets of “kindness” for those voter’s “well-being”.

            No other political party has been able to resist those voters, until the imperatives of Roger Douglas, and then the Bank of New Zealand dilemma that Ruth Richardson rightly or wrongly used.

            Though I did think Bill English was tightening up on some of New Zealand’s very liberal benefits, like cheap state housing for life, no matter what size that house.
            To try and bring accountability to bear for receiving state funding.

            ….. ✸ Sixth point: economy, economy, economy.
            We all know that the Left want to operate the economy according to abstract notions.
            This is a trap for the Right. Never fall for it!
            When we came to power, we decided that we must only pursue economic policies that benefit the majority of voters.
            .
            Here in Hungary we have a motto about this: “Even those who did not vote for us end up better off.”
            In this, we are the polar opposite of the progressives: even those who voted for them end up worse-off.
            .
            In the final analysis people want jobs: people want jobs, not economic theories.
            People want to take a step forward in life, and people want a better life for their children than the life they have had.
            If a government of the right is unable to deliver all this, it is doomed to failure. ….

            “Even those who did not vote for us end up better off.”
            The hard part is to develop the policies, the path, to that change and then deliver!
            There is merit in the “State Advances”;— as Maggie Thatcher also managed to get many more into their own houses too.

            The effect on some, from New Zealand’s share market, 1987 shadows of an uncontrollable wild west.
            Then finance company’s losses of 2006-12 because of the major down turn in very safe bank interests rates.
            Sure some people were greedy, or was it really because the declining bank interest rate was turning out to be not enough.
            Which now is proven to be more difficult, unless one consumes the capital.
            But seeing inflation, cost of living increasing?

            So very logical to put it into a house, where compared to that share market, one has much more control, and in having that, is more accepting if one does make a stuff up, like the bad tenant in arrears, but is removable, and try again.

            Sure people considered capital gains, but it is more like not having inflation eat away at the capital, but also knowing there were increasing costs of rates, insurance, some maintenance to attract, find a trouble free tenant.
            Always felt affirmed, but not to the high runaway level induced by government.

            At some stage house prices may fall, but it also looks like house replacement costs, maintenance costs, etc.. may in the cost of living rise so much in a relativity as to be a catch up with that house price rise.
            Naturally with-in that is migration, in or out, to what prevails, new houses completed, so supply demand, the old market laws may still be there, but considering the higher cost of building also.

            I stop as I see I am getting tangentially onto a rant. 🙂
            The part is to cross over and lead to Victor Orban’s concepts.

            • I suggest that what you & I both aim for is equality of opportunity but not equality of outcome. A safety net for the truly unfortunate is a price that a decent society that I would be proud to live in pays without complaint.

              Feather-bedding for the indolent & state charity for those cunning enough to exploit others eg landlords, is a bridge too far. Not dissimilar to today’s practise of encouraging both groups of parasites at the expense of those prepared to work for what they want.

            • Thanks nasska ;— noting we have some parallels of thought.

              It is amusing to see the Chinese supposedly buying up houses in New Zealand, and hearing anecdotal stories of not bludging on NZ state, by leaving the house empty.
              More than understandable, as having a bolt hole to a safer life,
              Also recognizing a tangible asset, compared to a bank account that is now proving to be far from safe from governmental haircuts etc..

              Also enough anecdotal stories of land lords in no rush to have a tenant, so they just able to meet the costs of insurance, rates out of other income, nor have to meet the government guidelines.

              Others are leveraged, with a mortgage, so on a rat wheel for income to meet all those out goings and have a good accountant on the job to manage all that part, and can even grow on from that.
              That develops into a landlord industry for them, that looks to harvest all it can.
              But this government listening to those landlords,, nahh more like how they do it progressively, or a might top in funding? Student council economics

              I have looked a little at Hungarian housing, to see what may be learnt, well I have been tediously quoting that PM 🙂

              Noting some problems and issues from a year ago, but Orban did win the election this year.

              28/11/2021 : 91.3% in Hungary.
              The country only ranks behind Romania (96.1%) and Slovakia (92.3%) based on the newest data of Eurostat. – Duna House reported.
              According to Hello Magyar, Hungary is currently sharing the 3rd place with Croatia in the EU ranking. This is especially interesting, considering the fact that home ownership is less common in Western Europe.

              Only 69% of the citizens own the property they live in in the Netherlands while this number is 64.5% in Sweden and 64% in France.
              The reason behind the high percentage of homeowners in Hungary is partly the people’s strong desire to have their own property.

              As Károly Benedikt, PR and Analysis Manager at Duna House, stated: “After the end of socialism, people were able to buy former rental apartments on very favourable terms which triggered a wave of home purchases in the domestic property market. This trend has been going strong ever since.”

    • One gets the impression from that mad bastard with the greying red hair that he thinks this is a wonderful thing to do.
      He’s devoid of any brain power that idiot. Much like his minister and his so called board of wankers.

    Meng Foon: Uniforms should enable children to participate in school life

    School uniforms are back on the agenda.

    The Human Rights Commission has put out a set of guidelines for schools and boards of trustees urging them to make sure uniforms are consistent with the Bill of Rights and the Treaty of Waitangi.

    The commission says affordability of uniforms should be top of mind for schools and schools should consider non-gendered uniform options that are suitable for all students no matter their ethnicity, gender or health condition.

  22. Good luck NZ.

    Surging prices have led the Reserve Bank to raise the official interest rate by 0.5%-points to 2%.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/05/25/official-interest-rate-hiked-as-inflation-continues-to-bite/

    The move in the OCR comes after inflation hit levels not seen in decades as a result of supply line issues caused by the pandemic and energy and food price hikes due to the war in Ukraine.

    People with non-fixed mortgages will feel the pain of the latest hike while savers are likely to benefit.

    Today’s rise follows a similar rise by 0.5%-points to 1.5% in April, after rising by 0.25 in February this year, and the same amount in November and October 2021.

    • Labours gun confiscation worked as well as mst of its policies.
      An unmitigated disaster!
      But another chance to kick law abiding gun owners , before they get to protest at parliament!.
      Never mind that most law abiding people want to keep as far from Wellington cess pits as possible

  23. World iunflation is created by inflating the price of energy.
    Everything you touch has used energy to get mined, made , transported and so on.

    Decrease energy prices and inflation will fall away.

    One way is to raise the value of our dollar.
    Printing money errodes that value.

    i.e. stop govt. spending.

    • It feels like we’re being ruled by fear!

      Incrementally and now in the last 2-3 years we have lost trust in our institutions, the academia, media, politicians, leaders, Doctors.
      Their data, information, has been shown to be very shaky.
      That faith in them has died, so we have a grief, but we must not allow it to make us fear things.

      The fear is a new ruler, how to bridge what seems to be an impossible gap?
      “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself” an impostor to the truth.
      That can only be bridged over in the truth, the facts, so then everything you actively do works for you in your life.

      Be true to yourself, and then we can know how to evaluate, and take the right course of action.
